Glad to see that folks are writing in the RUDDELL forum once again.I have been trying for years to make a link between my ancestor William Henry RUDDELL, b. 1805 TN, d. 1859 KY and his parents Stephen and Sarah RUDDELL, but can't find enough documentation.Only have a death notice from a book that stated Stephen and Sarah were his parents.
I am connected to the RUDDELLs through my grandmother, Nola Tennessee RUDDELL who m. William Richard HELTSLEY in Kentucky.
I read with great interest that there might be another RUDDELL that came to America and may have begun the clan. I also have been contributing to the RUDDELL tree you mentioned at http://www.ruddelltree.comhttp://www.ruddelltree.com.
